Canada: Islamic jihad terrorists planned to blow up U.S.-Canada rail line — “It was meant to be spectacular and there would have been a lot of carnage.”
These noble warriors of Islam hoped to sow even more death and destruction than they have already sown. Meanwhile, Muslim communities in the U.S. and Canada say they condemn such jihad activities, yet have nary a single program to teach against this understanding of Islam that they ostensibly reject and abhor. Authorities don’t seem to mind, and after jihad attacks or jihad plots like this one rush to prevent a never-appearing “backlash” rather than call these Muslim communities to account. And so we will see many more such jihad plots.
“Canada thwarts plot to blow up U.S.-Canada rail line,” by Euan Rocha for Reuters, April 22:
(Reuters) – Canadian security forces thwarted a plot to blow up a rail line between Canada and the United States and will announce arrests on Monday afternoon, police and intelligence agencies said.
U.S. security and law enforcement sources also said the suspects had sought to attack the railroad between Toronto and New York City. Canadian media said two men had been arrested after raids in Toronto and Montreal, Canada’s two biggest cities.
Canadian police are holding a briefing about a “national security criminal investigation” at 3:30 p.m. ET (1930 GMT).
The police statement, which gave no details of arrests, said various Canadian security forces had conducted joint operations in the two cities.
A U.S. law enforcement source told Reuters the alleged plot was not linked with last week’s Boston Marathon bombings….
